5 Minutes with @jillyisabella

·
This week our blogger babe, Lauren caught up with her girl crush Jilly. We are revealing her top wardrobe must haves, her fave cosmetic products and of course secret details about her new job!!
-
“Some days I want to be Mary Kate and Ashley other days I want to be Paris Hilton extra.”
-
LBD: As the new Quiz Social Queen what does a working day look like for you?
 -
JILLY: No day is the same. We always have a million things going on from having bloggers in for social days to organising events. It’s hard work and stressful at times but the marketing team are amazing so it doesn’t feel like work!
-
-
LBD: How would you describe your style?
 -
JILLY: I used to be all about the black and white life but I got bored of wearing the same thing all the time so recently I’ve started trying things I never used to think I would suit like wearing brighter colours, more jewellery. I would say I still keep it quite simple. I feel limited in what I can wear with my hair colour. But really it just depends on my mood and where I’m going some days I want to be Mary Kate and Ashley other days I want to be Paris Hilton extra.

LBD: What is your go to outfit for every day at the office?
-
JILLY: Depends on what I’m doing that day. I’m more of a heel girl (I’m so short - cry) so on days I know I’m not running about mad I’ll wear my trusty comfy topshop sock boots or I have the cutest Chanel dupe sling backs (topshop too). If I’m wearing heels I’ll wear skinnies and a blazer but if I’m wearing trainers I’ll do baggy jeans or a long skirt (I hate my legs in jeans and trainers lol).
-
-
LBD: We see all the exciting jobs you get involved with working at Quiz, what has been the most exciting thing you have done so far?
 -
JILLY: We just recently shot in Marrakech for our A/W17 campaign with Gabby from Love Island and other beautiful blogger gals. Crazy stress for the organising but it was a power team and I can’t wait to see the shots. Keep an eye out for The campaign video dropping v soon.

LBD: So, you are BODY GOALS times 10!! What is your daily diet?
 
JILLY: Thank you although I’m sure I’m like every other girl where you always think there’s somewhere to improve. I’ll have basic breaky like scrambled eggs or porridge with fruit, lunch always a tuna or chicken salad then dinner I try make more exciting because by time 6pm comes I’m bored of life with what I’ve eaten that day. My fave go to dinner just now is a fajita salad bowl. I make my own guacamole and salsa sauce from scratch and that helps avoid the sugars that are added to store bought sauces.

LBD: For someone so busy with your job, still managing to slay your style AND retaining the best ABS we have ever seen – what is your gym routine and when do you find the time to work out!? What’s the secret?
 -
JILLY: Honestly I’ve found it hard to fit the gym around work. I prefer a work out  in the morning but I’d also prefer the extra hour in bed. For me prep is key. So if I make my meals for the day the night before, my work clothes are picked out and ironed and I have my gym stuff looked out then when my alarm goes off I’m the morning I’m like right you- get up! You wanted to gym last night you’re just being lazy. A gym buddy is the biggest motivator though – can endure the pain together.
-
-
LBD:  You and your girls are the ultimate gang but if you could make your own celeb girl gang, who would you have in yours?
 -
1 - Mary Kate and Ashley… for wardrobe needs
 -
2 - Nicole Ritchie, Jennifer Lawrence… for the laughs
 -
3 - Emma Watson … mega feminist and she’s a wizard
-
-
LBD: What are the three cosmetic products you can’t live without?
 -
JILLY: Mac strobe cream!!! It’s life if you love the dew – I’m all about the dew. Benefit hula bronzer because during the week I don’t wear make up but a lil once over with that and you’re good to go. Recently I started a skincare regime because I feel like I look borderline 65. I’m using Nip and Fab and love it! But they have a million different products so it’s best to look for what you specifically need – if you feel like an OAP like myself the no needle fix serum is the one.
-
LBD: What would you say your 5 key wardrobe pieces are and why?
Black leather jacket – this is my best investment piece ever! Smart, cool and can wear with anything. Couldn’t live without!
 -
A good handbag – I don’t feel like my outfit is complete unless I have a good handbag. I also just really really like nice handbags lol it’s my thing
 -
A crisp white tee – not life changing, groundbreaking fashion but a crisp white tee is my go to. Me and my friend Taylor actually joke about ourselves now for how much we go on about it because I’m like “think I’ll wear a white tee” and Taylor’s like YES WOW creative stylish groundbreaking and then we’re like OK it’s just a white tee.
 -
A smart coat – I’m a winter baby and love the colder months so I prefer winter dressing to summer. Investing in a smart coat will make the most basic outfit chic. I like layering my coats with my leather jacket underneath. I’ll probably have another 40 layers under that as well because 1.) yes to layering and 2.) no to Scottish weather
 -
Classic heels – I’m about the investment pieces that I can get a lot of wear out of so a classic style like points or sandals) and a classic colour like black and nude
